    1. I'm leaning towards pullet
    2. Cockerel
    3. Cockerel
    4. Cockerel
    5. Cockerel
    6. the comb and wattles with the thick legs has me worried, I'm leaning towards male, despite the darker coloring
    7.Cockerel
    8. is a cockerel, wide barring indicates two copies of the barring gene, which is males
    9. I would say cockerel also
    10. Cockerel

    Really early still to sex them, but I'm very confidant most are cockerels

    All the cockerels I marked are 100% cockerels, for the iffy ones I would say another 3-4 weeks to be sure
